Lexus teases all-new UX crossover, to debut in Geneva next month

The Lexus NX will soon have a baby brother in the form of the UX. Yes you read that right, what was only a concept shown back in 2016 is now a production crossover. It is set to make its official debut at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show and will likely remain faithful to the original concept design.

Based on the sole teaser photo, the rear of the UX will get a distinct taillight design that runs the entire width of the crossover. Also present on the upcoming crossover are what appear to be flared wheel arches and tailgate-mounted spoiler. The rear quarter panels, on the other hand, appeared to have been smoothed out for production purposes.

Pictures of the UX's front fascia were not revealed but it'll most likely have a toned-down design as well. However, do expect the UX to come with the brand's L-Finesse design philosophy. More than likely, the UX will feature a bold spindle grill, sharp-looking headlights and a prominent hood.

When officially launched, the UX will be the fifth member of Lexus' growing luxury utility vehicles. It will join the likes of the refreshed NX and the recently-launched RX L, a seven-seater version of the midsize RX.

Beside the UX, Lexus will also be showing the LF-1 Limitless Concept, as well as a special edition RC F coupe that was made to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Lexus F.

The 2018 Geneva International Motor Show will be open to the public from March 8 to March 18 at the Palexpo Convention Center.
